Walter White is back...bitch. And we're fucking stoked. After an absolutely hair-raising season four, easily the best of "Breaking Bad" so far, with a phenomenal finale that now positions Walter White (a badass Bryan Cranston) to take over the game for himself, a new trailer for season five has dropped and outside of anything at the multiplex, this is one of our most anticipated pieces of entertainment this summer.

Over the past few weeks, we've had to say goodbye to a slew of our regular TV season favorites, and we've already listed our favorite 10 shows of 2011/2012. But there is still going to be some great stuff to watch over the next couple of months on the small screen. This summer sees the return of one the best shows going around as well as a new show from one of the platform's most talented writers. We're of course talking about "Breaking Bad" and Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" -- both of which have a bunch of new pics to stoke the fires of anticipation.

For four seasons straight, creator Vince Gilligan has overseen a near-perfect narrative of suspense and drama in “Breaking Bad,” and it has all been in service of showing Walter White through his inevitable path to darkness. As the series enters its fifth season next month, viewers are ready to finally see that bleak conclusion, but a few choice words from Bryan Cranston recently regarding his character have entertained other potential avenues to come.

If you’re getting sick of the deluge of studio fare this summer, cable may provide a much needed reprieve, and new teasers from two highly-anticipated shows -- one about the inner-workings of a cable news network and the other following the ongoing adventures of high school teacher turned meth dealer -- have arrived.

While the summer is an excuse for the movie studios to roll out their biggest offerings, television executives are much more afraid of warm weather, leaving the television dial mostly as a wasteland of repeats and reality shows. As such, the TV season essentially gets underway in September, and runs through to May (with cable dramas occasionally moving the goalposts a little either way -- "Breaking Bad" starts in July, "The Newsroom" next week).

If the final season of “Breaking Bad” airs in two halves, does that mean there’s actually two seasons left? In the end, it doesn’t matter – AMC has confirmed the show’s return on July 15th, and that should be enough cause for celebration. Eight episodes will air over the summer, then leave our fall and winter without resolution, before coming back in the summer of 2013. Star Bryan Cranston essentially confirmed all this back in March, but apparently the man is not yet verified as an official news source, sadly. [AV Club]

Rising starlet Imogen Poots has joined the film adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel "A Long Way Down," which has Pascal Chaumeil at the helm. She'll star along side Toni Collette, Pierce Brosnan and Emile Hirsch, who previously joined the tale of four disparate individuals who meet one another on a London rooftop on New Year's Eve, all with the same intention to commit suicide. Instead of jumping, these complete strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until at least Valentine's Day. Lensing begins this September in London from a script by Jack Thorne, whose debut film "The Scouting Book For Boys" earned major praise.

While many fans will probably just exclaim “Why can’t we just watch it already, Yo!,” patience is certainly a virtue when it comes to the highly anticipated return of the Vince Gilligan-created AMC series “Breaking Bad.” A show that actually needs no introduction at this point, it’s long been rumored that the fifth and final season would be split into two separate halves, much like all young adult adaptations do nowadays in an effort to milk fans' anticipation. And well, looks like that will be the case.

Sundance: Aaron Paul Says Any Potential 'Die Hard 5' Involvement Would Likely Conflict With 'Breaking Bad'

While Bryan Cranston has used his "Breaking Bad" acclaim and fame to take roles in, well, everything, his equally talented co-star Aaron Paul (aka Jesse Pinkman), hasn't been so quick to rush the big screen. But judging by the reaction to the alcoholism drama "Smashed," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews (including ours), it's likely he's soon going to be reaping some big rewards for the talent he's shown that he can carry from the AMC series into feature films. Indeed, he's already been linked as a contender to play as John McClane's son in the brewing "A Good Day To Die Hard." We caught up with Paul in Park City and while he acknowledges there were some talks, it looks like Jesse Pinkman is still taking priority.
